Pepe Might Have Stunk But He Had Spunk
30 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A romantic womanizer of the ninth degree" is the way critic Leonard Maltin describes the cartoon character "Pepe LePew," a creation of writer Michael Maltese and director Chuck Jones.

Maltin loves the character's fake French accent and language and the fact that the locales for many of the cartoons have such a European flavor, especially French. These LePew cartoons have a lot of style to them.

Film director Joe Dante says young people today have no idea Pepe is a parody of classic-era actor Charles Boyer. "It's the only link these younger people have with the famous actor," he notes, "because they've never heard of Charles Boyer."

Everyone in this DVD bonus feature - about a half dozen people, compliment the work of Jones on these cartoons, even though most of the plot lines were all the same! They point out the amazing colors, artwork and style they have over the other Looney Tunes cartoons.

The men in here also comment about Pepe's always-optimistic personality and drive. Personally, I never though the cartoons were that funny but after listening to this behind- the-scenes documentary, I have a new appreciation of them.
